Landry moved to northern California in 2013 and recorded his first album, The Bayou – a musical marriage between American Jazz and African Soul. The album is a collection of songs that explore themes of triumph and sorrow. The vocal delivery is vulnerable and emotional. The emotion was inspired by years of inner struggles living in the closet as a gay man. Landry chose The Bayou experience as a gateway to finally be authentic with himself and the rest of the world. Inspired by the peace he found while recording the album, Landry went on to dedicate The Bayou to the LGBT community, thus making the album artwork (the two boys kissing) a powerful symbol of gay love: a love that is pure, authentic, childish, uncontrollable, and international. The intention behind the album is for every family to own it as a reminder to love fiercely and unconditionally. http://landryatthebayou.com
The Acrobatas are a Brazilian trio augmented by a Cuban pianist and an American saxophonist. They take a detour through Jazz and Funk before diving deep into Brazilian music. It's like someone invited five musicians from all Americas into the same room and locked the door. Join Alex Dalzochio on guitar,Julio de La Cruz on piano, Rafael Lima on bass, Michael Zaninovich on tenor saxophone and Daniel Arruda Camargo on drums for an evening of Brazilian melodies.
Note: The summer catalog had a misprinted price for this event. The correct price is $15.
